, how does he find his way out of this one? speaker baner says he -- speaker boehner says he won't negotiate with him and president obama seemed implacable on his positions. >> back to me, i think there is going to have to be a shift in how obama handles the hill. you know, when presidents win re-election, the air on top of mt. olympus is scbfl feels great. but it's very thin and it leads to you do things that can appear arrogant. that affects your approval rating and then your agenda can't get through. that's what has happened in second terms with presidents in america. unless obama can show the american people, on the big issues, like the budget and immigration and what he is talking about with guns, he can work with the republicans. let me ask you a question, can you name the one bipartisan accomplishment of president obama? >> yeah, it's called getting re-elected. >> okay! the fact is, if you look at where the country is today, the clear majority of americans, larger percentage of americans voted for obama than past presidents. but in terms of policy, i am not going to say it

's constitutional and everybody knows it is a cover for a strategic retreat from the principle that john boehner articulated earlier that the only amount of debt limit increase that's going to pass is going to have dollar for dollar spending cuts. that's very hard to do, for democrats, for republicans, for anybody in washington, and so he's backed away from that, and now he's going to try to see if he can pass it with republican votes. the importance of this principle from a democratic point of view is they've broken with the idea that the debt limit is so important that it needs to be enforced. that's why senate democrats say they will pass this next week by an overwhelming margin if it passes the house. the white house says it won't block it and house democrats, if you read between the lines, they're urging their members to vote against it, but they don't mind this proposal one bit. here is chris van hollen, the ranking democrat on the house budget committee today. >> the good news is that our congressional republican olleagues have finally recognized that america must pay its bills and meet i

but then the house took recess and did nothing. house speaker john boehner called a vote under pressure. once congress reconvened the first week in january first they approved the $9 billion then the additional $50 billion two weeks later. the vote in the senate is on the remaining plus $50 billion. we're back after the break. stay with us. armed with the facts, and the arguments to feel confident in their positions. i want them to have the data and i want them to have the passion. but it's also about telling them, you're put on this planet for something more. i want this show to have an impact beyond just informing. an impact that gets people to take action themselves. as a human being, that's really important. this is not just a spectator sport. what we need are people prepared for the careers of our new economy. by 2025 we could have 20 million jobs without enough college graduates to fill them. that's why at devry university we're teaming up with companies like cisco to help make sure everyone is ready with the know-how we need for a new tomorrow.
